WHAT TO EXPECT

This is an immersive, fun, and educational wine tour visiting 5 of Central Otago’s finest and off-the-beaten-track cellar doors in Gibbston, Cromwell, and Bannockburn. The day starts with pick-up from selected Queenstown accommodations. You'll travel in style with transfers in a luxury Mercedes van, with complimentary WiFi and bottled water.

 

The tour has a regular lineup of wineries that it visits, but the exact destinations will vary based on availability. However, you will get to sample over 20 spectacular cool-climate wines whilst learning information, stories, and facts about the region and wine from your charismatic guide and cellar staff.

 

Central Otago is the world’s most southern wine region. The oldest commercial vineyard in the area only planted its first grapes in 1983, yet it's is widely regarded as one of the world’s top three Pinot Noir regions, along with Oregon in the USA and Burgundy in France. Even though Pinot Noir is undoubtedly Central Otago’s main attraction, there are several other cold-climate varieties also gaining global attention, including Pinot Gris, Riesling, Chardonnay, and more recently some unique Sauvignon Blancs.

 

Enjoy an optional stop for lunch at the renowned Bannockburn Hotel (additional cost, ordered on the day). This heritage hotel looks out over some of the finest vineyards, landscapes, and mountain scenery in the world. It also has a wine list over 200 bottles long, with at least 60 of those available by the glass. 

 

Even though the tour has a rotation of regular wineries, if you have any specific requests or stops you really want to visit, please advise at the time of booking and we will do our best to accommodate.

 

Where we visit:

  • 5 Central Otago wineries (stops vary on the day)
  • Bannockburn Hotel (optional)
